  • The World is Full of Good People!

    33,918 views 1 year ago
    Rob Greenfield has a simple idea… that people are good and the world is a good place.
    So he decided to put his idea to the ultimate test by flying one way to a far off place with no money, no credit card, no cellphone, not even a toothbrush. Just the clothes on his back and a passport. Mainstream media portrays the world as a dangerous place, a place that you should fear and Rob is out to prove them wrong.
    He landed in Panama City, Panama 4,000 miles and 7 countries from his home in San Diego, California with no camera of his own and made this film using the cameras of people he met along the way
    He worked odd jobs to earn money for border crossings, travel, and food. To start off he collected cans and sold stuff he found in garbages. He worked on organic farms in exchange for food and a bed to sleep in. He foraged in the wild for food, ate food that other people wasted
    and shared meals with the generous people that he met along the way. He stayed with people he met through sharing websites like couchsurfing and WWOOF and stayed with complete strangers that he met traveling and from social media.
    He hitchhiked and took buses and even walked part of the way. Dozens of people picked him up on the road side and enjoyed taking part in his adventure.
    Generous and kind souls gave him food, places to sleep and they insisted on getting nothing in return. He always tried to give more than he received because money is just one form of exchange. By traveling with no money it took him to places and introduced him to people
    he never would have seen or met in any other way.
    People showed him that we need a lot less to be happy and healthy than we think and that by living simply we can live freely. His happiest moments were those when he could help others that he met.
    He arrived back in San Diego 37 days later with just 10 cents in his pocket.
    28 people used their cameras to make this documentary. When he got home all he could think is PEOPLE ARE GOOD!
